-Oiled
-Pre-Oiling

I'm never satisfied with regular products; I'm always looking for ways to make things better/different/unique...

i've been on the prowl for sperry chukka's on sale, such a cool shoe....they looked pretty amazing in your pics from Europe especially when untied and paired with some cuffed, raw denim. the white sole is a bit forward thinking for fall, but I guess that's kinda the appeal...

just had another though...how awesome would these be paired with LL Bean Laces (as seen on the saddle colored blucher http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay?page=handsewn-moccasins-blucher-moc&categoryId=11575&storeId=1&catalogId=1&langId=-1)

damn, dude. Beating me to it! I've got an extra short pair of traditional redwing laces around my place somewhere, was thinking the exact same thing. I love contrast thinking, I wear sperrys year round and I actually prefer the white sole.

Ryan said...

Yeah, I like em a lot! I think I've worn them at least once everyday since I bought them...super comfortable...

Loving the application you did. What oil did you use?

Ryan said...

Zachary- I used Red Wing Boot Oil. http://www.zonkshop.com/red-wing-boot-oil-p-1121.html

Great product for bringing back old boots and keeping leather fresh and crack free...I've had the same bottle for like 5 years.

Yeah, I'm loving the darker patina. I've got a pair of non-chukka topsiders just begging to be revived. Also, loving everything you're posting on the blog. Thanks for the tip!

The idea of new gold and tan laces would not get out of my head, such a killer look, so I had to post...thanks for the inspiration...

Ryan said...

where did you find these? I have only been able to find the sueded version, which I don't like nearly as much
